My story

[p]Dear Friends [/p][p]I am looking to complete a gruelling cycle this September to raise awareness and funds for a UK charity called [url=https://www.big-change.org/]Big Change[/url]. We are targeting a £1m raise. The peloton will include a variety of entrepreneurs and thought leaders. I fund all the travel costs etc (its 5 days across a number of the historic climbs of the Tour DeFrance, c. 100 miles per day) and I am hoping to raise funds directly for the charity. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I am passionate about this charity in that it is providing a helping hand to young people in the UK living in marginalised and struggling communities. The charity focuses on education, bridging academic gaps, tackling social mobility, raising mental health issues and providing young people with the skills they need for life in the 21st century. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I would be hugely grateful if you could contribute in any way.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Link to my gifting page: [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JosephMcCarthy1]Gifting Page[/url][/p][p]Link to Big Change: [url=https://www.big-change.org/]Big Change[/url][/p][p]Link to the event: [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/]Strive Challenge[/url] [/p]
